It was a great success for all the groups that participated. Over $7000 was brought in by all the groups.
There were 12 rescue groups represented. There were 5 dogs adopted as a result of being shown at the walk.
PAWS and BASH brought in about $4000.00 that they will split. We want to thank all the the people that
helped to put it on and make it such a success. It was also fun. We had 97 walkers ( a little down from last
year but the economy isn’t that good). People still had fun and we are planning next year. Sharkie was
there, we did bobbing for wieners and more

  BASH has made 1000 + dog booties for use by Iditarod Musher. We have
    been doing this for the past 7 years. We have a blast with 5-9 sewing
   machines going at one time. If you don’t sew there are still jobs to do-
    turning, cutting threads and quality checking of our sewing along with
combining booties in groups of 4 then packages of 25. If you want to learn to
use a sewing machine, we will be happy to teach you. This is for women, men
                       and the kids.

sewing machine (surger or regular ones) and time to have

                                                           November 7,8

                                      We have a MULE now for carting and bathroom runs.

                                  This is the last camping run of the year. It is usually cool and
                                  we meet an hour earlier because of the time change.
                                  At this one we also put all the “summer stuff” away in the
                                  container for the winter. It is set up so that we can run again
next sprint.

We meet around 4 pm on Saturday night and if the weather allows, we run the dogs between 7
and 9 pm. If it is warm we eat dinner first and then run them. They run from 1 mile to 7 miles,
again it is based on the weather… Dinner is a group effort.
Some people then camp in tents but most campout in their cars or beside them.

In the morning we rise with the sun and run the dogs again. We try different dogs in different
positions and come back to a GREAT group breakfast and off the hill by 11 am…. You still
have time to do things before the end of the weekend.

Most people go up for the whole event. SOMETIMES (not all the time) we have a couple that
only come up for the evening part. This can only happen if we have at least two cars going
down at the same time.

Time to meet- 4 pm at the lowest gate (there are three locked gates so we have
to stay together) (an hour earlier)

      RSVP Randee at (408) 371-1841 or bash@com- by the WEDNESDAY before the weekend to
find out what to bring and for how many.

      What you need to bring- your own drinks,
sleeping bag, food for your dog and food for the

Call for directions. It takes approximately 30 minutes from Highway 85/Almaden Expressway
to the first gate. People can also make arrangements to meet at Randee’s office and follow her

It is great fun and very relaxing. The views of Santa Cruz, Monterey Bay and Santa Clara
County are wonderful both as the sun rises and the sun sets. Come and join us.

information given
Kodiak is a young dog that has some trainiing but needs more. Knows sit and down. He
LOVES to play with a tug toy and loves to play tag with another dog. He rides ok in the car and
enjoyed the ride. He is learning quickly how to walk on a leash and after 5 days in the foster
home is settling in to the house. He is ok with kids but we would recommend older kids
because of his size and energy. Overall he is a sweet guy that derserves a family that will love
him and play with him. He will make a good companion for another dog but we don't know if he needs one.	
Jessica Politiz 510-793-8508 jessicapolitz@gmail.comCharlie is 7 yrs old, owner surrender due
to a divorce. He appears to be a siberian/malamute. They have had him since he was young. He's a
great dog, very easy, knows sit, lay down. NO CATS it did s ay, other humans, and kids is is fine
with...just no cats. He is GREAT on the leash, no problem with food. Very sweet boy,
housetrained, good in a car and fine with other dogs both large and small. He is a sweet wonderful
dog who deserves a home that would like a dog who loves to go for walks and or hang out with the
family at the house.

Jordon is a sweet true alaskan husky. Everyone who has met him and played with him says that
he is very sweet, but has high energy. He is only 37#'s. We think is mixed with a spitz type
breed...what ever he is cute. He wants to play with all. So far he has gotten along with every dog
we have introduced him to but seems to do better with girls than boys. You can handle him all
over (tail, legs, mouth) and he takes it. He can be possesive of toys, but a strong owner will do
fine with him. He is not noisy but really wants to please. We think he would be great for an active
family. He will be ok as an only dog. He is not a chewer so we believe he will be good in the
Roxie and her pup Shilo are yet two more victims of the economy. Their owner needs
to find a new home and it's not looking good that she can take these two with her. We
would love to keep these two toge ther, since Shilo has been with his mother all his
life and has come to depend on her. Both are housebroken and good in the house.
